Plastic Bags

sunny 11 °C

Packaging in China is amazing. Everything is double packaged eg say you buy a packet of Oreo biscuits, they look the same on the outside as they do at home, however inside they are wrapped again. Everything you buy they want to put into plastic bags. Takeaways are served in plastics bags. Even beer is sold in plastic bags. And China has a severe problem with waste. There are no dumps.

From the 01/06/08 China has introduced that you must pay for plastic bags at the supermarket in a bid to reduce pollution. I'm in full support of this especially when you see red plastic bags multiply in the rivers. I am now also the proud owner of several environment bags. It's the same story as at home you buy them but forget to take them back with you. The bags here are a little more stylish then the green bags we have back home.

Very good point. I seem to remember even seeing Chickens in prepacked bags!


Nothing changes from country to country, put your bags with your money and you can't go wrong.
